Hidden Challenges in Ecosystem Responses to Climate Change
(JSM Environmental Science and Ecology, 2013-11)
Terrestrial ecosystems exchange vast amounts of C with the atmosphere between the processes of gross primary photosynthesis (GPP) and ecosystem respiration. As such, land surface processes that affect the balance between ...

Land grabbing refers to the large-scale acquisition of comparatively inexpensive agricultural land in foreign countries by foreign governments or corporations. In most cases, the acquired land is located in under-developed ...
Tapping Into the Creative Potential of Our Elders
Experimental Realization of Tunable Transmission Lines Based on Single-Layer SIWs Loaded by Embedded SRRs
Wave propagation in single layer substrate integrated waveguides (SIWs) loaded by embedded split-ring resonators (ESRRs) is discussed theoretically and experimentally. It is shown that the loaded SIW can support a backward-wave ...
The Environmental and Ecological Benefits of Green Infrastructure for Stormwater Runoff in Urban Areas
(JSM Environmental Science and Ecology, 2013-12)
Water runoff from impervious surfaces threatens urban ecosystems, public health and property values. Traditional stormwater management systems are often overwhelmed after big storms, prompting the evaluation of alternative ...
SLIT3–ROBO4 activation promotes vascular network formation in human engineered tissue and angiogenesis in vivo
(Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, 2013-11-01)
Successful implantation and long-term survival of engineered tissue grafts hinges on adequate vascularization of the implant. Endothelial cells are essential for patterning vascular structures, but they require supportive ...
Analogous to art curatorship, Internet curatorship also requires a significant creative effort. Each Internet curator uses individual criteria to create their own collage of information and themes they focus on. Even when ...
